Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the surface of front teeth. Veneers can be used to improve the form of irregular teeth, cover discoloration and reduce gaps between teeth.
The color and shape of the veneers are matched for a long-lasting and natural-looking smile.
Your dentist will first prepare the surface enamel of the front teeth. This treatment requires little to no anesthesia.
A digital impression of the teeth will then be taken, from which the veneers will be custom made.
At your next appointment, your dentist will check the fit and color of the veneers before bonding them into place over your teeth. Further polishing may be required to complete the procedure.
Dental veneers are a long-lasting cosmetic dental treatment, lasting up to 10 years or more with good care. Your dentist will advise you on how to look after your veneers after your treatment.
